Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A short walk to a large Kauri tree. It used to be much more square but has rounded a bit. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

If 1200 year old forest giants are your thing you will love this. The walk is short but steep with close to two hundred steps climbing up the hill to the kauri tree. It is really impressive and well worth the little effort involved. Parking on the road shoulder is limited but all free!

The large Square Kauri tree is well worth visiting if in the area. A fairly short climb up to the tree on a well maintained track with steps. Driving from the Thames side the road is tar sealed until the last 3kms. Parking on the left, Sign and start of the walk on the right.

Only take 2-3 minutes to walk up- nice view down into the bush from the viewing platform. Would recommend for Kauri lovers.

Drove past here yesterday while travelling the Tapu-Coroglen Rd.
The tree is huge and very healthy looking. And certainly stands out as you come toward it. No missing it

Keep in mind that if you approach the tree from the East shore of Coromandel, almost the entire road is a gravel road. If you approach the tree from the West shore of the peninsula, the road is shorter and only partially gravel. The forest that you are driving through is absolutely beautiful and looks almost entirely untouched by humans. There is a lot of birdlife in the forest. The Kauri tree itself is very impressive to see up close, it is huge! I would definitely recommend visiting the Kauri tree if you are eager to see more of New Zealands' pristine forests. In my opinion, it was well worth the dusty car!

Well worth a drive along this road irrespective of whether you are going to see the kauri. It’s a gravel drive but not a problem, just fantastic forest.

Heading east on the Tapu - Coroglen Rd you would easily miss this. Luckily we were told about it so knew where to find it.

You could see an older kauri in Northland, but this 1200 year old giant is about as amaZing as it gets
